    To fit the TB esthetic, shouldn't TB watches be so tight your hand turns black?

    Why? Thom Browne suits aren't tight. [​IMG]

    Neither. You're a fashionista. There should be your picture in wikipedia when someone searches this term

    I don't think you know what Fashionista means.

    Looks like they have the El Primero chrono movement in them. I remember when Zenith's weren't sold in this country and you could get them for a song in Europe. Then LVMH came along.

    Funny. Although in reality, not bad for a 16 year old, huh? Especially one earned the money to buy the watch?

    Those outside of the fashion industry call anyone who is "into fashion" or "wearing crazy clothing" as being a fashionista.

    Those inside of the fashion industry view the term "fashionista" as being more equated to a label whore or someone who tries (well, some might actually live it) to portray a lifestyle of luxury/glamour/taste. Think the FIT student who runs around with a monogram Gucci tote, Dior aviators and runs around to the main designer boutiques to buy a tshirt or sneakers here and there. Their myspace or AIM name will probably have the word "couture" in it.
